A Beautiful Day in Aranjuez, Spain

I was trying to browse some photo albums in my files this afternoon. The main reason is, I am slowly cleaning my laptop and was deleting some albums and files after transferring it to my new external hard drive. The 3 terabyte or 3,000 gigabyte EHD  I ordered online was already delivered this morning.

I found some   photos from   my travel in Spain last year.  My  beautiful friends from Madrid  brought me to their apartment in Parla, a municipality of the Madrid Metropolitan Area. The  day   before, I was mentioning to them that I want to visit Aranjuez. Whoever wants to go with me are welcome.

We had a fun night that evening. Some were not decided whether they want to go with me in Aranjuez or not. My good friends, Peachy and Ate Inday decided to go with me. It was a fun day! The weather was quite cold since it was  still winter in  March last year.  The sky was cloudy but the sun was shining. We took a train  from Parla to Aranjuez. I guess, it was only around 30 minutes ride with the train…if I am not mistaken.  We had a beautiful day going around for some hours in this small but lovely town of Aranjuez.
